There is power in place, and World Forestry Center is fortunate to steward a five-acre campus in Portland’s Washington Park. Having the physical space to foster relationships, host critical conversations, and create emotionally resonant events and experiences sets us apart from many of the local and regional non-profits doing environmental, public education, and social justice work.
This year, we are sharing our campus with other non-profits through an inaugural Complimentary Venue Grant Program.

“We are looking for new ways to elevate diverse voices, promote inclusiveness, and improve equity in our community,” said Event & Visitor Services Director Jennifer Kent. “By offering this grant, we hope to increase access and build new relationships.”
The new program will award two grants in 2022, each for a complimentary event venue rental in either Miller Hall, Cheatham Hall, or our Cheatham Hall/Plaza combination (up to a $3,950 value).
Preference will be given to non-profit organizations that have not held events before on our campus. Applications will not be accepted for events already booked at World Forestry Center.
“We’re lucky to have these beautiful spaces,” said Kent, “and we’re looking forward to sharing them with organizations doing good work for our communities and our environment.”
